Historically, the treatment of hepatitis C virus infection has been difficult, but therapeutic options have improved markedly recently because of the development of novel antiviral therapies.

Pulmonary toxicity should be considered a potential serious complication of novel antiviral therapy for hepatitis C virus infection.
